Welcome aboard. Star Control II will take you on a far journey, a space odyssey encompassing the realms of science-fiction and role-playing. This epic adventure spans hundreds of light years, and evokes a history reaching back over 250, 000 years. As you travel out among the stars, your decisions and actions will directly affect the destiny of 18 intelligent, star-faring species, including the inhabitants of Earth. [. . . ] Multi-Function modules fit along the spine of your flagship and can transform it from a colony space-ark to a mineral processing platform to a battleship of unrivaled power. The characteristics of your flagship depend on the selection of Multi-Function modules you make. The optimum lay-out of modules for your starship will depend on your specific mission, and your style of play. Adding and Removing Modules To add a module to your flagship, choose +MODULE. The game will then display a list of available modules in the Flagship Status Window. A flashing cursor will now appear on the schematic display, allowing you to position the module on your vessel. The cursor will
now move back to the module list so that you can add more modules, if desired. When you are done adding modules to your flagship, press Spacebar or Button #2 to return to the Command Menu. There is no perfect configuration of modules, so at times during the game you will want to replace a module on your flagship. To remove a module and recover most of its value, choose -MODULE from the Command Menu. A flashing cursor will then appear on the schematic display of your vessel. Use the Cursor keys to move the highlight to the module you wish to remove and press Enter. Note: You cannot remove modules which contain resources such as fuel in Fuel Tanks or minerals in Cargo Bays. For a detailed list of module descriptions, see Appendix VI Flagship Modules.
In addition to enhancing your flagship, the Earth Starbase can also build additional combat vessels to escort you on your travels through space. To build combat ships, or commission new crew members for your flagship or combat vessels, choose SHIPYARD from the Starbase Main Menu. At the top of the Shipyard Screen you will see a schematic of your ship which shows how much fuel, cargo, and crew you have aboard. Beneath this schematic are the 12 ship hangars in which you can build your fleet of combat vessels.
Adding and Removing Crew
To add new crew members, select +CREW from the Shipyard Command
Menu. Move the cursor using the Cursor keys to the ship to which you want to add crew, and press Enter. Your maximum crew level depends on how many Crew Pod modules you have attached to your flagship. For combat vessels, the present/maximum crew levels are shown in text beneath the image of each ship. When you have added sufficient crew members, you can then move the cursor to another ship, or press the Spacebar to return to the Command Menu. To remove crew from your flagship or a combat vessel, choose -CREW from the Shipyard Command Menu, then move the flashing cursor over the desired ship and press Enter. [. . . ] To remove a Cargo Bay, it must first be emptied, typically by visiting the Starbase Commander.
Fuel Tank Maximum: 16 Each Fuel Tank Module holds 50 units of fuel which is enough to take your flagship halfway across known space. Of course, if you are making a lot of planet landings, or are employing a powerful device, you may wish to increase your fuel capacity with more Tanks. Fuel Tanks are purchased empty, but can be filled from the Earth Starbase OUTFIT menu. Dynamo Maximum: 16 Dynamos are finely engineered pieces of equipment whose function is to supply raw energy to your weapons systems by augmenting your normal combat batteries. [. . . ]
